NEPC recruits senior research consultant

Kiersten Christensen was named a senior research consultant at NEPC, spokesman Reed Schneider said.

It is a new position.

Ms. Christensen is responsible for overseeing equities. She is based in Boston and reports to Timothy R. Bruce, partner and director of traditional research at NEPC.

Ms. Christensen was a vice president, institutional portfolio manager at Eaton Vance (EV) Management (EV). She will not be replaced because the position no longer exists due to an internal reorganization, said spokeswoman Robyn Tice.

NEPC has $954 billion in total assets under advisement.
